St Agnes grew up as a fishing and farming community which, from Roman times (and perhaps earlier) until the early part of the 20th century, relied heavily on tin mining as a source of income. With the demise of mining in Cornwall, St Agnes has become a popular tourist destination, offering excellent beaches at Trevaunance Cove and Chapel Porth.
St. Agnes has grown over the years and now includes once small hamlets such as Goonbell, Goonvrea, Goonown. “The Beacon”, is a local landmark now owned by the National Trust, it rises 629 feet in isolation from the surrounding landscape with the sea at its feet. St Agnes derives its old Cornish name, “Bryanick” (pointed or prominent hill) from this dominant landmark.
